I've had extensive discussion about the overscan/underscan dilemma with AMD developers who work on the Catalyst drivers. The basic idea is that AMD would rather underscan some people whose HDMI displays don't overscan, and create too small of a picture (blank spaces around the picture), rather than not underscan and cause people whose displays always ...

Photoshop CS4 and ATI Catalyst Control Center both hook the Escape key. To fix it, use Windows Task Manager to terminate ccc.exe and restart Photoshop.

I just ran into this exact issue, and found the solution. I use CTRL+ALT+DOWN to duplicate a line of text in Eclipse, so when it flipped my screen I was somewhat perplexed :) My OS is Windows 7 64-bit and here is where the hotkeys can be edited or disabled. Open Control Panel Click on "Appearance and Personalization" Click on "Display" Click on "Change ...

Intel chipset users should right-click on Intel Graphics tray icon and disable hotkeys. Other way to do this (if Intel Graphics tray icon missing): Control panel -> Display -> Change display settings -> Advanced settings -> select tab "Intel® Graphics and Media control panel" -> press button "Graphics Propertries" -> Options and Support -> Hot Key ...

The trick was to first set up everything and then create a preset.

For Linux, the fix is to enter this in the Terminal: sudo aticonfig --set-pcs-val=MCIL,DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan,0 (posting this here to just need a single bookmark for all platforms)

The control center is an optional feature that is required only if you are unable to set up the desired options through the default "display settings" interface on Windows. In the past, I have used the control center to configure the relative positioning of monitors, but the native support for managing monitor positions have improved (it is fully usable in ...

Your error code means you have an issue with your temp folder: C:\Users\André>err 1632 # for decimal 1632 / hex 0x660 ERROR_INSTALL_TEMP_UNWRITABLE winerror.h # The Temp folder is on a drive that is full or is # inaccessible.

As far as I know Need For Speed Underground don't have widescreen support. There is a patch for it here.

Make sure the cable you are using is a dual-link DVI cable, a single link cable will only work up to 1920 by 1080.

Had the same problem and finally solved it. It has to do with overscaling, as @ChrisInEdmonton pointed out in the comments. You have to do the following: Open the Catalyst Control Center Display the My Digital Flat Panels menu. Click on Scaling options (Digital Flat Panel) Turn Scaling to 0% This will solve your issue.

Possibly Catalyst files corrupted. Try to reinstall it. What you (really) need to use the ATI Catalyst drivers is the service AMD External Events Utility started in automatic mode. Catalyst® Control Center Launcher or CCC.exe is as far as I know useless and can be disabled (with Sysinternal's Autoruns for example). You don't have to run this utility at ...

It's a issue with the Photoshop and it happens on other programs too. (It's probably related to some Photoshops plugins) You should be able to use SHIFT+ESC to bypass it. This issue is fixed in CS5. You could also try one of these programs from here http://forums.adobe.com/message/1636461#1636461 if you are not happy with the SHIFT-method or upgrading to ...

Windows XP only supports two simultaneous displays on these cards. You'll need to be running Vista or 7 (or possibly Linux, I'm unsure what the driver there allows).

ATI eventually got back to me - I need to add the profilename to the followings key: My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ATI\ACE\Settings\Runtime\Graphics\ProfileOptions

This part tells you the version: Catalyst™ Control Center Version 2009.1110.2225.40230 Catalyst is currently released on a monthly basis and the version number is year.month as integers. The above number says this build was done on November 10 2009 so the version is 9.11. Is this the driver you downloaded?

You can try: aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f This should "cheat" xorg into thinking you have a separate X display connected to every GPU, thus disabling Crossfire

As Shinrai said, it's probably the notebook's hardware shutting off the monitor (and detaching it) when the lid closes, regardless of what the OS is set to. Check the notebook's BIOS settings and see if there's any options you can control about the monitor turning off on lid-close in there. If not, then you're pretty much done-for if you need the ...

Solution from prevent monitor switching when closing laptop lid : Go into registry and create a new DWORD called "LidAlwaysOpen" set value to "1" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\"YourDisplayGUID"\0000\ Some user have been reported this will work only for first lid closure, but not for subsequent ones. The ...

The fglrx drivers are currently in no state to be called anything but beta drivers. The support is abysmal. However, reinstall them using these methods. But before you do, make sure you purge the current drivers using: sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev* xorg-driver-fglrx This is the only course of action, everyone ...

ATI Catalyst video card software may be the culprit. In this case, you should open Catalyst Control Center and disable „hotkeys” there.

I ran into the same issue when first setting up my own Acer H244HQ display over HDMI on my AMD Radeon HD 6970 cards. The image over an HDMI connection can look as good as a DVI connection, with the right settings. I don't think AMD's CCC defaults to the optimum for monitors over HDMI though. Keep the underscan/overscan settings as you had before, so the ...

Please note that DVDs are low resolution, I am not sure the exact one, but here is what Wikipedia says the possibilities are: From Wikipedia At 25 frames per second (commonly used in regions with 50 Hz image scanning frequency): 720 × 576 pixels (same resolution as D-1) 704 × 576 pixels 352 × 576 pixels (same as the China Video Disc standard) 352 x 288 ...

Just hook the monitor up to master card. The frames rendered by the secondary card is moved to the master card internally. You used to have to hook up a cable from the secondary card to the master card for crossfire, but that was a long time ago, and ATI has long since overcome that technological limitation. Unless you are running a program, usually a ...

The master card is the topmost card, the one nearest the CPU. Plug the video cards into that one (assuming you don't need more than 3 monitors, as each ATI card supports 3 video outputs). You can effectively ignore the lower video card when connecting monitors.

The article Brightness control after resume sleep/hibernate broken seems to show that this is a universal problem with Win7 across many laptop models. Some suggestions from the article are : In Power Settings the "Choose what the lid does" is set to do nothing, then close the lid and re-open every time this happens Press Fn+F7 (select projector mode) then ...

Normally the reason you'd get the message is that you're installing nvidia-utils. Are you installing something that depends on nvidia-utils? That could cause it too. I recommend installing libgl and xf86-video-ati first as a transition step. This should remove your conflicting nvidia drivers. After that's taken care of, install the catalyst package from the ...

The .exe is used by the AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5730 graphics card in the laptop. Installing new drivers from here did not initially help. However, this issue can be fixed by uninstalling the AMD APP SDK Runtime bundled with the drivers. Go to Control Panel Go to Uninstall Programs Click on AMD Catalyst Install Manager, and click on "Change" at the top of the ...
